Topic "special characters in password"

When I log in to a host with a user whose password has special characters like , the access is denied.

If I change the user's password in host to aeiou and I try to log in then it works.

The same special character password worked months before (I don't know what version I used), I suppose this is a new 'feature' in new version.

I also tried to enter with filezilla and the special character password worked.

What protocol are you using? Which version of WinSCP did work?

I'm not aware of such change between 4.0.6. and 4.1.7. Are you able to login now with 4.0.6? Or did it just work then?

I've downloaded all disponible versions from 3.8.1 to 4.1.7, and I'm not able to login now with a special character password. But I'm sure before summer it worked. Maybe is a SSH issue?

In other way WinSCP doesn't log in with special character password, and other file transfer programs like filezilla do it correctly. Can anyone confirm this?

Can you try PuTTY?

Putty fails when login with password: and do it correctly with password: a
It has the same behavior as WinSCP.

Than I doubt that Filezilla works. Because it is based on PuTTY as well. Are you sure you are using SFTP with Filezilla?
